June 5, 2014: Nepal Telecom after recent expansion in various regions of the country (latest running at Kavre, Sindhupalchowk) is known to swap the existing network in Hetauda. As a part of the package A of the ambitious 10 M GSM project, NT is replacing the old ZTE BTS with Huawei BTS plus covering the city areas with 3G. After the week long swap program (starting from today June 5), customers will have good voice quality and the data speeds will increase significantly (along with 3G in the city areas).
What to do if you encounter any problem during the upgrade?
It is also known that there may be some problem during the swap time. For that, customers need to switch off/On at least once and wait patiently for sometime, but NT requests them to contact their mobile customer center (1498) if the problem persists for long.
What to expect with 3G?
3G Subscribers there will be able to surf fast internet with speeds up to 7.2 Mbps. Apart from Fast internet access, 3G provides you additional service of Video call at Rs 2 per minute and MMS at Rs 1.5 per one MMS (file size 200 KB).
How to subscribe 3G?
NT GSM customers (both prepaid and postpaid) can easily subscribe 3G by sending a text 3G to 1400. Customers even need to select 3G in their mobile network settings, to use 3G service.
How to configure 3G for your handset?
After the registration of 3G, if you are already browsing NT GPRS in your handset then you don’t have to do anything as it is the same configuration, otherwise you have to add ntnet in the access point name inside the mobile network settings which are located differently in different handsets except for blackberry (where you have to use external browser Operamini). You can directly configure the handset by sending SMS to 1404 with keyword: gprs (nokia, lg, motorolla, indian etc), sagprs (samsung mobiles), segprs (sonyericsson mobiles), chgprs (chinise mobiles) and save the incoming SMS with setting by giving the pin code 1234.
